October 10, 2006 3 Section 4 Group 3 Introduction : For this experiment the properties of stress and strain on a steel column were observed while applying axial, and combined loads. This is important to the study of Civil engineering steel is becoming more widely used in an array of construction applications. Also it is important to understand how commonly used materials in engineering will react under real stress because the real world does not always react like the models in textbooks. This exercise demonstrates the use of strain gages by using a simple hydraulic press and instrumentation. It also shows different axial and combined stresses, which are used to calculate and verify Poisson’s ration for steel.
